wade bergnerBreakthrough Your Life / 8 Step Congruency Process

We go through life implementing lists, equations, and processes to formulate results.  However, what method have we been using to create congruency in our life?  If your anything like myself, your method has been spotty at best.  Combining education with strengths has been our standard for many years.

Fresh off returning from an amazing business retreat, I sunk my teeth into a concept that energized me.  A session that broke down four categories that adhesed four lifestyle traits.  After completing this process of self-exploration, I began to visualize it’s potential to impact myself and others.  Molding these eight areas together, unites and allows us to work in harmony and deliver results.  I will break down each area, and share insight on why I envision positive results occurring once implemented.



“Do what you love, love what you do”.  Ever notice how you lose track of time when you’re in this state?  We are relaxed, “in flow”, and very efficient when we truly love what we’re doing.


Pay attention to what your good at.  This doesn’t just mean your career or profession, pay attention to your hobbies and interests.  You could very well be missing out on something special if you overlook areas that seem childish, odd, or silly.


Scratch your head for a bit and really think about something the world needs.  This is an excellent way to get out of your own way, and see congruency take form.  Don’t restrict yourself, think freely and just start writing what comes to your mind.


Once you pull those three areas together, brainstorm how you can be compensated.  You’ll probably be surprised at what you come up with.

Now that you have these four categories working in congruency, lets adhere them with four subcategories.


PASSION – When you combine what you love with what you’re good at, you’ve found your passion.

MISSION – By connecting what you love with what the world needs, you’ve uncovered your mission.

VOCATION – Combining compensation with what the world needs, establishes your vocation.

PROFESSION – Compensation aligned with what your good at, equals profession.


You now have the ingredients to produce transformational results in your life.  This will not be enough though, you must do the below exercise and follow it up with a high dose of implementation.


Find a sheet of paper and list the four main categories at the top of the page.  Then slam out ten thoughts that come to mind when you ask yourself those questions.


LOVE                                     GOOD AT                             WORLD NEEDS                                  PAID FORwade bergner



Once you’ve finished, look closely at the final category and pay attention to how you feel.  If you’re not inspired, take a break and brainstorm another five ideas.  Odds are, you’ll get clarity to your purpose.

I hope this concept serves you, and leads to a fulfilled life.  Please share your comments below, and follow me to on any of the below links.  I’ve also attached a link to the online education that taught me how to earn a living in today’s digital economy.

    Wade this is an incredibly powerful process that I will be getting started on as soon as I stop typing this comment! I often think that this digital world offers so much opportunity that it can actually cause “Option Paralysis”. The process you’ve described here will be very helpful to anyone who is struggling to find a holistic way of life and business in this brave new world.

    Hello Wade, I totally agree, I have always been making check-lists and plans and all those things and never got anything really complete. But as soon as I step into a field that I\’m truly passionate about everything seems to flow more easily and I enjoy everything so much better! Thanks for sharing the main categories, I\’ll definitely will try it out!

    Thank you, Wade, for the 8 steps to congruency you have shared with us. Everything starts with love. In business we need to do what we love but if we are not there yet, it\’s better to love what we are doing right now. I loved the idea of combining what you love with what you are good at to find your passion and most importantly your mission in life. Our missions should be big enough to fulfill the world\’s needs and solve major problems.
    Namaste 🙂
